Just Watch: Tear – Begging

Tear Words: Julia Grantham I couldn’t resist the opportunity to review this latest track from Tear when I had the chance. Having discovered them in the autumn of 2015 via Tim Burgess on twitter-they’re signed to his label-I reviewed an earlier song of theirs and this current one Begging is just as deliciously dark and … Continue reading

Just Watch: Maximo Park – Get High (No I Don’t)

Maximo Park Words: Nick Bewes I’ve been playing Maximo Park’s music on the radio for over a decade and the new material is as good as anything they have done in that time. The second single from new album Risk to Exist is called Get High (No I Don’t). The press release says the new … Continue reading

Just Watch: The Bay Rays – Satisfaction

The Bay Rays Words: Elena Katrina The Bay Rays are filling a bit of a musical hole in my life with this track Satisfaction, and that hole is the kind of sounds that Kings Of Leon used to give me back in the early days. You’d be forgiven at the beginning that it was them … Continue reading

Just Watch: Cupids – Good Things (Come To Those Who Wait)

Cupids Words: Julia Grantham I was ecstatic to learn that, finally, this irresistible and powerful track by Cupids has been put out there for the public to enjoy.  Good Things (Come To Those Who Wait) is all at complete earworm; with a strong, clear bass line, super crystal clear vocals and backing vocals and Sid … Continue reading

Just Watch: Pumarosa – Dragonfly

Pumarosa Words: Nick Jacques According to an excerpt from an interview the spiritual psych London outfit Pumarosa, the aim of their music is to work everyone up into a euphoric state. On the evidence of this forthcoming single Dragonfly this could not be further from the truth. This immersive and prowling number from their upcoming … Continue reading

Just Watch: Estrons – Belfast

Estrons Words: Elena Katrina Estrons are probably one of my favourite heavier bands of the last 18 months or so and having seen them play live several times the video for EP track Belfast is getting me excited to go and see them live again next week. Belfast further demonstrates the bands energy riddled tracks, … Continue reading

Just Watch: Get Inuit – Barbiturates

Get Inuit Words: Lewis Rogers Kent’s Get Inuit are back with their totally bonkers video for brand new single Barbiturates. After hearing the track during the band’s set on the Spring King tour last year, the recorded version definitely captures the spirit of the live performance. Singer Jamie Glass explains that Barbiturates “depicts a person’s … Continue reading

Just Watch: Vant – Do You Know Me

Vant Words: Gary Feeney With almost 5 million Spotify streams to their name, it’d be fair to say that VANT have been making their presence felt since the release of their first single less than two years ago, and with their debut album, Dumb Blood, due next month, they look set to explode into the … Continue reading

Just Watch: Cloves – Better Now

Cloves Words: Elena Katrina Cloves displays her beautifully rich vocal and songwriting skills within her latest track Better Now. The track might offer up vulnerable moments both vocally and lyrically but there’s also passion and attack and those harsher moments are what draws you in closer as the creep up unabashed and strike on your … Continue reading

Just Watch: Happyness – Falling Down

HAPPYNESS Words: Jasmin Robinson After their debut album Weird Little Birthday received a massively positive response upon its release in 2014, the hype surrounding London trio Happyness has been quite something. Three years on, and these alt-rock boys are back with the announcement of their sophomore album Write In, set for release on April 7th, and … Continue reading

Just Watch: Young Romance – Pulling At The Grey

Young Romance Words: Lewis Rogers London-based two piece Young Romance have unveiled the video for their new single Pulling At The Grey, the first to be taken from their debut album Another’s Blood which was released back on 25th November. The pair have described their LP as ‘quite a DIY effort’, and this is certainly … Continue reading

Just Watch: The Big Moon – Formidable

The Big Moon Words: Eliza Laben Formidable is the new track from The Big Moon, female indie-pop band from London. The beginning of the track hints at a style similar to that of Lana Del Rey and Florence Welch , particularly within the deep, buttery vocals. However, unexpectedly, it takes on an upbeat, more pop-rock … Continue reading

Just Watch: False Advertising – Sigh

False Advertising Words: Gary Lambert When I think of False Advertising, I think of loud, thrashing rock with a strong hint of a tune to it. However, Sigh is a game changer. It still sounds like False Advertising, but with Jen Hingley leading the band on this track the overall result is far more melodic. … Continue reading

Just Watch: High Tyde – One Bullet

High Tyde Words: Gary Feeney Despite only being in their teens, Brighton four-piece High Tyde already have a remarkably extensive back catalogue to their name – their newest single, One Bullet, is their eighth such release, although most of those were much lower-profile affairs. The fact that the band has that experience of recording shows … Continue reading

Just Watch: Lying Bstrds – Youth & Old Age

 Lying Bstrds Words: Elena Katrina Having seen these guys play their first ever show to now posting this video, it’s been quite the thing to witness the journey for Lying Bstrds, and it’s really only still the beginning.
